As I watch the blizzard outside my window today, I keep chanting, “Spring will come! Spring will come!” One must have faith to live in Upstate NY. So, I will focus on all the news coming in the next quarter.
Inside this edition of Art Matters, you will find some new classes, events, exhibitions, and festivals. Grab your coffee and spend some time shopping for new ways you and your family can be a part of the Arts scene in the Mohawk Valley.
SAVE THE DATE: “Water Music NY” is coming to Little Falls on Wednesday, July 5th, 2017. This exciting event will feature the Albany Symphony Orchestra as they celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the Erie Canal. In collaboration with MVCA, the orchestra will perform an open-air concert on a barge docked at the Little Falls Rotary Park Marina. The centerpiece will be a new, original piece of music, composed especially for Little Falls. Call the Arts Center today to see how you can participate. Most importantly, save the date and come join the festivities. Watch for more details on our FaceBook page and website.
Finally, please support the Arts Center. We are asking for your help. Donations, business sponsorships, and scholarship monies are gratefully accepted. Volunteers are encouraged to help with Publicity, Graphic Arts, Development work, Technology, manning the Selective Eye, or helping with exhibits and events. We are growing every day with exciting new projects and possibilities. Don’t be shy; WE NEED YOU! Come be a part of it all, because Art Matters!
I wish you warm sunny days, daffodils, and chirping robins. Spring is just around the corner; I promise.
